The 2017 Dawid Mocke Masterclass

Race Your Best Race!

Dawid is inviting 10 paddlers to join a masterclass in final preparation for the either the Canadian Surfski Championships or Gorge Downwind Festival (or both) and ensure that you will have the race of your life!

Maximise your preparation in the final approach to these events with specific personal advice directly from Dawid as you enter the critical final few weeks before the races. (*)

Then, at the race, join Dawid for 3 race specific clinics –

  • The day before to run through final preparations;
  • The morning of the race, warm up together and discuss conditions and strategy;
  • And finally, the post race de-brief, discussing what worked, what didn’t and how to improve from there (this is a vital and extremely important exercise often overlooked by athletes)

Topics covered:

  • Final preparation regimen in the weeks leading up to the event
  • Tapering, rest and recovery
  • Nutrition
  • Effective and effecient equipment and kit selection
  • Perfect boat set-up and preparation
  • Effective preparation for expected conditions
  • Warming up, starting and finishing strong
  • Route scouting and race planning
  • Tactical decision making while racing
